In 2007 the Zapico brothers created Concerto Zapico, their most personal project. Through it they reached a longed for aspiration: to be able to make chamber music together. The problem is that none of them play any melodic instrument, but rather instruments ideal for solo repertoire or for the realization of the basso continuo. But playing together?
To achieve this they decided to take on the task of transcribing a selection of Italian and Spanish dances from the 17th and 18th centuries, creating a unique and personal language. Their first recording in this format was a huge success in 2010, and this one is sure to follow. The three brothers Pablo Daniel and Aaron Zapico are the heart of Forma Antiqva- one of the most fascinating Baroque Ensembles of the Spanish music scene. An extraordinarily versatile group, Forma Antiqva can adapt their size to form a chamber music ensemble to a full Baroque orchestra.
